my thoughts exactly.
i mean... like this couldve been said by South Carolina plantation owners in the late 1800s .. as soon as you bring 'tradition' into it i must have clarification of what precisely is trying to be conveyed lol

For me, it means to always stand up for what you believe in.

Well even Nixon thought that Fred Thompson was a nutcase.

Still, what does Mr Thompson think is "western civilization" ought to be? I mean; how many"isms" are there really out there that didn't come from Western Civilization?

But that has nothing to do with the quote, which references the very nebulous Western tradition.

that's not what the question here is. what does Thompson consider to be its traditions, and why does he think they require defense?
